    5 Sep 19 - Neil Foreman - Cambridge

    Flew into Newquay on 1st September 2019.

     

    Easy online PPR form on the flynqy website, including fuel required option and space for comments such as ‘taxi required’ etc. Submitted this the day before.

     

    Handed over to Newquay radar from Exeter radar overhead Dartmoor for a basic service (VFR flight) and ‘ultimately, joining instructions’. Given a squawk then a simple right base join for runway 30. Enormous, well surfaced runway, easily vacated right at C then clear instructions to the GA parking.

     

    The fuel bowser rolled into position just after shutdown for a quick refuel. Various tie down points and concrete blocks with rope attached to secure the aircraft. It’s a few minute walk to the Fly Nqy cabin (high viz jackets mandatory airside) where just a signature was needed at this stage and the taxi into town was waiting - even though I’d arrived nearly an hour ahead of the time predicted when submitting the PPR form.

     

    Paid the bill on departure, fuel £1.88 per litre, just £2.40 per night parking and £30 landing fee. The landing fee does seem steep but overall a great welcome and very impressive service from Fly Nqy.

     

    Called for start, given a squawk on taxi out, clearance ‘right turn out, not above 2000ft’. Took off from C (where I’d earlier vacated) and it was still twice as long as my home strip!
